A. COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
We collect and process personal data, i.e. information that identifies, or at least makes it possible to identify, you as a natural person (e.g. your name, your address, your phone number and/or e-mail address) when you decide to actively communicate with us. Furthermore, we collect and process certain technical data that results from you visiting our website (see section B below).
1. The Public Section of the Website
There are certain data that you may – but by no means must – submit to us when using the public parts of our website.
- 1.1 When you subscribe to services that we may offer our users from time to time you will obviously have to submit your email address as well as any other data necessary for the provision of the service. Also, there are means on our website to get in touch with us directly, especially our contact form, which in turn requires you to submit personal data, such as your name, phone number and email address, but also the very content of your request.
- 1.2 We collect, store and use such data in order to fulfil your corresponding request. Your data will not be collected, stored or used in any other way or for any other purpose. Hence, as an example, if you submit your email address via our contact form with a request for certain information, we will use only your email address to get back to you with – so we hope – the information you requested. Hence, you fully control the information you provide Lean Apps about yourself and how it may be used.
B. LOG FILES, COOKIES, WEB ANALYTICS AND SOCIAL MEDIA PLUGINS
- 1. General and Error Log Files
- When you visit our website, our webservers store certain data in log files. The general log files may tell us which Internet browser and operating system you were using and which IP address was allocated to your Internet access when you were visiting the site, the URL of the internet page from which you arrived at our website, the exact time when you accessed and left our website, the amount of data transmitted, and the pages you accessed on our website.
- 2. Cookies
- 3.1 Our website uses http cookies. An http cookie is a piece of text stored on your computer by your web browser. Cookies are sent as a field in the header of the http response by our web server(s). It is then sent back by your browser every time it accesses the respective web server.
- Our website uses session and persistent cookies in order to provide you with an easy and comfortable web service. They allow us to, for example, display the German contact information any time you visit our website if your first visit to the site came from Germany.
- The Platform under theleanapps.com uses session cookies (which are automatically deleted at the end of each session) that, for example, allow us to identify you as the same user (but no more) over a session on our website and to “keep” certain data across more than one webpage so that you don’t have to reinsert the same data or set your personal settings over and over again. Also, theleanapps.com sets a persistent cookie to keep the particular language that you prefer so that you can use the Platform in that language without having to change your settings each time you access the Platform.
- 4. Web Analytics
- 5. Social Media Plugins
As already explained above, you can use your browser settings to prevent the acceptance and storage of new cookies. Should you disagree with the analysis of your use of our website you can also deactivate Google Analytics and thus declare your objection to the collection and processing of the respective data. To do this, please download and install the browser plugin that Google provides for this purpose. The plugin is available at Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on
Once the plugin has been installed, it will prevent the recollection of the data related to your use of our website that has been generated by the cookie (including your IP address).
On certain webpages of our website we may implement so-called social media plugins, in particular Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and XING buttons. When you visit a page that displays one or more of such buttons your browser will establish a direct connection to the respective Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING server and load the button from there. At the same time Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING will know that the respective page on our website has been visited.
We have no influence on the data that Facebook, Twitter LinkedIn, XING collect on the basis of the buttons. According to the available information, however, if you do not click on the respective buttons no personal data will be collected and stored unless you have logged onto to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING account. In that case certain user data (including your IP address at the time) may be collected and linked to the account information already present at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING respectively. If you wish to prevent this, please log out of your social media accounts before visiting our website.
In addition, clicking a button may also lead to a collection of certain data, such as the user’s IP address. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING may set cookies as well, unless you have disabled the acceptance and storage of cookies in your browser settings (see above).
We receive no information from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING about which social media buttons you may have clicked or seen on our website, but, if at all, we may receive a summarized, non-person-related statistical report on the use of the buttons.

C. NO DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
We will not disclose your personal data, be it by transmission or otherwise, to third parties except where:
- such disclosure is necessary to fulfill existing obligations towards, or assert and enforce claims against, you;
- federal or competent state authorities, in particular law enforcement and/or data protection supervisory agencies, request such disclosure on the basis of the applicable laws, if and inasmuch as such disclosure is necessary to counter dangers to public safety and order or for the investigation and persecution of criminal acts;
- in the event that Lean Apps acquires or merges with another company, sells assets, reorganizes or enters into a joint venture or other business combination with another company, disclosure may be made to that other company;
- we are otherwise bound to do so by law.
Lean Apps takes great care to ensure the security of personal data. Your data is conscientiously protected from loss, destruction, distortion/falsification, manipulation and unauthorized access or unauthorized disclosure through appropriate technical measures.
However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.
You are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any access to or use of the website by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by you or on your behalf.
